    Hi @lalajee

    If you setup PAC File by configures the proxy settings for Microsoft Edge, please refer to doc: ProxySettings policy.

    Setting the ProxySettings policy accepts the following fields:

    SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Edge\ProxySettings = {
      "ProxyBypassList": ",,https://internalsite/",
      "ProxyMode": "pac_script",
      "ProxyPacMandatory": false,
      "ProxyPacUrl": "",
      "ProxyServer": ""

    After configuring this policy, to force a group policy update, type gpupdate /force at the Windows administrator Command Prompt (Run as administrator).

    Then, enter "edge://policy/" in edge, and check if there is ProxySettings enabled.
